S&P 500 Forward PE Valuations vs Future Returns | Volatility in Stock & Option Markets

By Derek Moore

Show Summary:

Derek Moore and Jay Pestrichelli return this week to discuss what current forward PE rations and whether that informs future market returns. Reasons PE ratios may go up or down including earnings increasing or markets going lower. Have there been a jump in forward earnings expectations? Then they check in on the high yield spread against treasuries and relationship to the VIX Index. Later they discuss the moving average of the unemployment rate and whether that is leading or lagging as an indicator. Finally, before some recommendations, Jay and Derek take a win vs. the Fed when looking at the supply chain pressure index vs. the CPI.
